How to use this search

The grants and funds are organised into areas of activity. These include:

  • Capital Works (includes purchase of property, buildings, extensions to buildings, upgrades or refurbishments to facilities);
  • Conservation, Preservation;
  • Equipment;
  • Indigenous Programs;
  • Philanthropic Funding;
  • Project Work (includes exhibitions, public programs, events, collection projects, crowdfunding, etc);
  • Residencies, Internships, Mentorships, Individual Development;
  • Staffing, Administrative Costs;
  • Workshops, Seminars, Conferences, Training (includes funds for hire of consultants and speakers);
  • Disaster Relief


This listing does not include: awards, prizes, or scholarships; sponsorship opportunities; or funding for for-profit businesses.

These resources are intended as a starting point only and do not necessarily represent all levels of funding available to any particular group. This information is also subject to change. Grant seekers should check the funding body's website for updated information and submission dates and speak to the contact officer before submitting an application.
